The snowflake landed on her nose. And all I wanted to do at this point was
a smile. Overwhelmed with emotion and excitement of the new snow, I knew
she would love not only the brightness that it brings but also the cool feeling
that she has never felt from something so small. No one knew about the
life she has had in the bubble in her family house. I knew she was only
allowed to look out the window for years. She saw snow, she knew what it
was but she never had the chance to touch it or see the whole picture. When
the window filled up with snow from the outside she couldn't see anymore.
Her whole life was lived from a bubble from an illness she had since birth.
I knew it called for snow today, I decided I was going to sneak in her house
open the bubble door and quickly run her to the porch to feel the snow.
She wasn't at harm, because I heard her doctor say she could
if ever needed, go outside
for no longer than 30 minutes in case there were a fire or emergency. Well,
this was an emergency. It very seldom snows here and this was going to be
a miracle. So let's make two miracles happen at once I thought. It's dull cloudy
and the wind was nippy, so I made sure she had enough clothes on to block
the difference. We went to the porch and her face lit up. I didn't know if it was
too cold or not but she had the biggest smile a person could ever see. And that's
when it happened. The snowflake landed on her nose. And all I wanted to do at this point was a smile.
